Homeless artist with no arms accused of stabbing tourist

The Florida native clutched the scissors with his feet and knifed 22-year-old Cesar Coronado twice before running away, according to the arrest report.

Police arrested a Florida man with no arms after he allegedly stabbed a tourist in Miami Beach Tuesday tonight.

The friend of a 22-year-old Chicago man who allegedly was stabbed by an armless street artist in Miami last week recounted the encounter on Thursday, describing how a simple request for directions turned into a surreal attack.

Mr Crenshaw said he was lying down when Mr Coronado approached and punched him, police said.

After the attack, Crenshaw is alleged to have put the scissors back into his waistband and quickly left the area. The 46-year-old says he was sleeping when Coronado kicked him in the head.

According to the Miami Herald, Crenshaw is a popular fixture in South Beach, where he is known for painting canvas using his feet on the Lincoln Road Mall.

The New Times reports that Crenshaw's most recent conviction was in 2014, when he was sentenced to 180 days in jail for felony battery on a police officer.

Crenshaw was charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, according to the Miami New Times.

Coronado was taken to the hospital and treated for injuries.

He will stand before a judge on Wednesday, July 18.

Along with multiple charges of battering police, Crenshaw's record also includes trespassing and disorderly intoxication arrests.
